BROWNS REPORTS Cleveland Browns to sign former Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde He's coming home

Hyde finished last season having played and started in all 16 games - the first time he's done so in his career. It is set to be a three-year deal worth more than $15 million with Hyde earning $6 million for the 2018 season.

Barkley, the premier running back in the draft from Penn State, has been in the conversation for the Browns at No. 1 and No. 4 overall.

Hyde was again the most productive running back for the 49ers in 2017, leading the team in rushing yards (938) while setting a career-high with 8 rushing touchdowns. The strong expectation is the Browns kick off the draft by selecting Sam Darnold out of USC.

With Hyde and Johnson both in Cleveland, the Browns may feel there are more pressing needs to address with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, such as quarterback, rather than spend it on another running back in Barkley. They traded with the Miami Dolphins for wide receiver Jarvis Landry, with the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor, and with the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall. He also took on a much bigger role in the passing game, catching 59 passes for 350 yards.

With the Browns paying Hyde $5 million a season for the next three seasons, it means Barkley could potentially get his wish of playing alongside Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning. In four National Football League seasons, Mitchell has 11 starts, including nine last season when he had four interceptions. A few hours later, Adam Schefter reported that the 49ers have agreed to terms with former Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon on a four-year deal worth $30 million. Through the air, the former 49ers starting running back added 109 receptions and amassed 634 yards, scoring another three touchdowns.

The Browns needed to sign a back, though, because Isaiah Crowell left via free agency.

If that is true, then the potential is there for Hyde to up his game and at least match his output from 2016.
